Optimism is often dismissed as false hope. But there is also false hopelessness. Optimism isn't a passive expectation that things will get better. It's a conviction that we CAN make things better and that we shouldn't look away or lose all hope. Even in dire situations, optimism can fuel innovation and lead to new tools to eliminate suffering. Optimism is essential to achievement and it is also the foundation of courage and true progress.
A pessimist sees difficulties in opportunities, an optimist sees opportunities in difficulties. Optimism is the tool that helps you to get up after you have fallen and keeps you moving towards the life you were meant to have.
Optimism is a happiness magnet.
If you stay positive, good things and good people will be drawn to you.
Optimists enjoy life's experiences twice - first in the anticipation, and then when they acctually arrive.
Optimism is not being naively convinced that things will be ok... because they might not be ok. Rather, optimism is knowing that YOU will be ok, no matter what. No matter what happens, the sun will rise again tomorrow and life goes on. Every day is a new oportunity.
Big things start from a single spark of courage.
Dare to dream.
